Self Confessed Train Robber's
Sweetheart Testifies Against
Him He Breaks Down.
Mir.sUHe. O. Oct 11 Miss Lillian Cost
low, who was engaged to be married to
Ferrell. the clf-oonfeseMl train robber, was
placed on the stand late this afternoon. Al
though quite nervous, she did not at nnj
time Ios- her composure She hesitated at
time's, but It was evMeiitlj' the result of her
de'ire to be explicit and positive rather
than to evade the questions.
She said she had become engaged to Fer
rell in September. 1S91, a"d that shortlj- aft
er the date for the wedding had been flxel
for August Hi. l'tti. She told of the prepa
rations for the wedding and of the money
that Ferrell had given her to keep for him
the day following the train robberj-.
She said Terrell had tola her that ho had
drawn it from a building and loan associa
tion, and that It represented his avinss.
She did not know the amount of the money.
It was. in two packages, one containing
gold and the other bills.. She also told the
storj" of Ferrell's arrest at htr home on
Suiidaj. two elajs after the reibberj-.
Kdward M Weiodcock, a prisoner In the
I'nlon County Jail, was placed on the
stand and repeated a confession Ferrell
had made to him It tallied clos-ly with
that made bj Ferrell to the Columbus, po
lice. When .asked bj- the defense how Terrell
had come to make tho statement to him. he
"Terrell must be 'cracked.' "
Ferrell was taken sick in the Jail to
night and a phjsiclan attended him. He Is
apparentlj- weakening, and It Is feared he
will have a nervous collapse.

They decided to take the papers to their

Colonel Nelson began his speech In the
Youtsev trial at 9 o'clock to-daj. He said
the belief existed that Juries are lieing
"packed" In th:e cases, "for the defend
ant had been urahle to secure a Juror of
hl own political faith to sit in t-e case."
Continuing. Colonel Nelson asked the
Commonwealth's attornej- whether he
wouli ask that Yout-ev- be tried for firing
tho shot or for aiding and abetting the fir
ing. "I will leave that for the jury to dfter
mlre." responded Franklin.
In referring to Tout-cy's, present pbv s'cal
condition. Colonel Nelson said he felt like
asking: "Can a dead man have n fair trial
as guaranteed by the Constitution? That
Yout-ey is to all Intents and purpose of
this, trial a dead man.
Spoke for Flv Ilonr.
He said Yout-ev had .1 right to deferd

Commonwealth Attorney Franklin be
gan Ms speech at HCS this afternoon and
spoke till T o'clock Ills eloquence at
times was thrilling and he brought sobs or
tears to all. even Judge Cantrtll en the
bench and Julge Askew of tlie defense be
ing visibly affected.
He scored ex -Governor Tavlor. saying if
he had two sparks of eourag he would re
turn here and help Youtsey out of this
trouble, if anv of the witnesses had lied on
Yout-ev: that If T.ajlor hud even only one
spark of manhood he would now commit
suicide under tb whip or his con-clence.
He fitted .all the testimony togethr. .an!
told the Jurv that nil those thing t'stln'd
to could not have been occidental. He -aid
lr Arthur Goebe had told an untruth as to
what Yout'ov told him. then Arthur Goebel
was .a worse man than the one who assas
sinated William Goebel
He cited many incidents as told bv other
wltn-svfs that corroborated what Youtsey
told Goebel. and said ex-Governor Bradlej's
absence as a witness practically eorrobo
lated Culton'a testlmonj as to Youtsev.
frr if Culton did not have a talk wlt'i
Urad'ej-. then he ought to be willing to go
a thousand miles to confound Culton and
save Youtj from death.
At 7 o'clock court adjourned till S.20.
